Fate?

Today I went out into the woods to photograph snow. As I walked around this huge tree branch came crashing down from a great height.

fallen tree branchIt landed just 20 yards or so in front of me. I’m pretty sure that if it had fallen as I walked under I could have jumped to safety because the crack it made as it broke lose echoed loudly though the wood. But If I didn’t have time to jump or for some reason froze I’m sure the weight would have caused serious harm. Fate?

I just wish my reactions were faster because the snow disturbance as it fell was quite spectacular and it would have made a great photograph.
